M1074 Joint Assault Bridge

The M1074 Joint Assault Bridge is an M1A1 Abrams tank hull with heavy (M1A2) suspension integrated with a hydraulic bridge launcher system to launch the existing Armored Vehicle Launched Bridge (AVLB) Military Load Class 95 Scissor Bridge. It is the sustainable system designated to replace the older AVLB vehicles, as the M1A1 Abrams chassis base makes the JAB more affordable than the M104 Wolverine (M1A2 System Enhancement Program-based).
